We want a design for a soft toy that will be manufactured for a promotion into a real toy. So your designing a teddy bear, NOT a logo. NOTE - it does NOT have to be a bear, it can be any form of creature that can be made into a soft toy. The toy needs to look funny, goofy, innocent etc, but when the operator pushes a button it will do something that gives people a fright (dont worry about mechanical stuff thats at our end) - we just need the character to work around.
Just remember with the design, think the Simpsons, Smurfs, Seasame St, original characters that are unique as them self, a smurf isn't like any other cartoon, nor is Oscar the grouch and Bert and Erny, (or big bird for that matter) have that in your focus. It can be an animal, or a human or a hybrid of some sort! As I said before though, we are not looking for "a monster" like something from monsters inc. Just a really unique character, that looks funny, yes it will give people a fright, but only when someone else pushes a button and its not expected.
Please note it does NOT have to be a "bear" it can be any form of creature of cartoon like character.
